He may have food allergies. Is he building up a ton of wax? Dog ear wax is black. If he is, he's probably allergic to his food. I'd take him to your vet and have him prescribe duck and potato kibble.
The other option is that he may have ear mites. This is also treatable by a vet.
Our dog had a similar problem and once we switched her to duck and potato kibble, the problem went completely away. (05/15/2006)
Dogs can get yeast infection in their ears, too. Check with the vet first for correct diagnosis. (05/15/2006)
Yes, I agree with the editor in regards with checking with your vet. I used to raise Chinese pugs and was told that the cause of their scratching of the ears was due to ear mites, which can be treated with some sort of tube medication. Also, some breeds of dogs are more prone for this problem to occur rather frequently. (05/16/2006)
